Lemonade, Tea, Me & Bey

So,

Beyonce’ dropped yet another amazing visual album and the world stopped… then carried on. 🙂

Although I absolutely loved her transparency, ability to showcase she is as human as the rest of us and creativity, I am using this forum to share how you too, can turn the lemons in life into lemonade and proudly carry on!

Here are the top 3 lessons (yes there were more) I learned from Lemonade, were able to relate with and so can you:

  1. NO ONE IS EXEMPT TO EXPERIENCE THE TRIALS IN WHAT WE CALL LIFE! In the words of the one who was once my “husband in my head” and now painting clouds purple as he passed on to glory, Prince “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” Truth is, we ALL go through it. But only a few will choose to grow through it. Beyonce’ shared her trial and how she’s grown and you can too. Whatever that thing is whether it’s marital problems, infidelity, insecurities, childhood trauma, or even health scares, sweetheart, you are not the first nor will you be the last. Pick up your bed and walk free. Cry, become angry, scream, pout, question and do whatever you need to let it out, but most of all, be sure to KEEP MOVING FORWARD!
  2. DON’T ALLOW IT TO “INTERRUPT YOUR GRIND!” Simply stated, *ish happens. Keep it moving. Bey shared how distractions, even those considered to be your husband can interrupt the plans God has for you if you are not careful. Do things in His will and never lose sight of the end prize. I have to be transparent and share, I fell into this trap for almost a year and when I heard those words “interrupting my grinding” all I could do was jolt up from the lying down position I was in and say in my Kevin Hart voice “wait… I wasn’t ready!” But the truth is, I needed to hear that. NOW… it’s about what I will do with that boost of inspiration. Come on now ladies, get in formation and follow suit! Don’t let anyone or anything interrupt the plans He has for you. Know your purpose and never stray away from it. If you get coins along the way, that is just an added blessing 🙂
  3. FORGIVENESS, FREEDOM AND MOVING ON! When life hands you lemons, make the best lemonade, forgive those who’ve done you wrong, own your freedom and once again, keep it moving! Forgiveness is the key to it all. Many times, why we get stuck is because we forget to forgive. Forgive the one whose wrong you, forgive what has happened to you and forgive yourself for what you’ve done to you including the extended pity party you threw. Own your freedom and let NO ONE take it from you. From family to social media to being captive to un-forgiveness, take your freedom back! “Freedom, freedom, I can’t move! Freedom, cut me loose!”

Invest in YOU

Morning Motivation

A quote I saw once stated “If you don’t build your own dreams, someone else will hire you to help build theirs.”

Profound and true.

The question of the day… how often do you invest in yourself?

It amazes me how many people I encounter that are not living out their dreams and how at one point in my life this was also me. In a world where we work, work, work… your dreams can become the back burner to your daily life. But the truth is, when we live this way of working and not fulfilling our dreams, we truly are not living… we are just existing.

to-live

I’ve coached many and when we approach this question, many have shared they have struggled fulfilling their dreams because of life responsibilities and needing to make money to survive. Trust me, I have been in this same place also but I will also transparently share, once I made the decision to quiet the hamster wheel of life and actually LIVE… it was the best decision I’ve made thus far. I travel the world, live on my own terms and experience overflowing happiness.

How do you get there you ask? Well here are 5 tips to Invest In You and start living out your dreams. 

1. Know your purpose! When you know your purpose it becomes easier to create a plan to execute it. Find out your purpose by seeking God during prayer and meditation asking what are you here to do. You can also ask yourself thought provoking questions to find out what you LOVE to do no matter if you are being paid or not… this will bring you closer to your purpose.

2. Do it in bite-size chunks. You will feel you are moving closer and closer to your God-given purpose if EACH DAY, you do something toward becoming who you are destined to be. This is how you INVEST in you! Examples include, studying more of the craft you want to perfect… writing if you say you are a writer… or even researching the role models in the field you want to pursue to gain inspiration and learnings.

3. Reflect on the small steps. When you reflect on the small steps you are taking toward your goals, this will empower you to continue moving forward.

4. Kick fear in the face!! Don’t be afraid to take the quantum leap! It will be a life changer and you may see some struggles along the way but the end result is happiness greater than you can currently imagine.

5. Reward yourself! When you take the quantum leap or even the baby steps each day then reflect on what you’ve accomplished… reward yourself for being bold enough to go in the direction of your dreams.
